There are plenty of Insta-worthy views in Seoul beyond the colorful mural villages and charming cafes in the city. You don’t need to make that 1 to 2-hour trip to scenic places like Gyeonggi-do and Gangwon-do for a breathtaking IG shot.

A lot of these destinations (the palaces and royal sites, for example) look best during fall or springtime, but they still look marvelous during winter. In some cases, the views almost devoid of lush foliage even look better—eerily quiet yet calming, especially after a snowfall.

Of course, the walk to and around some locations may feel like leg day, but the views you get as a reward (and possibly several double taps) will be worth it.
